Esiason on D&C: Pats need pass rush

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show for his weekly visit and discussed the Patriots' 28-14 loss to the Jets. "I think you saw a really desperate Jets team defend their home turf," Esiason said.


Esiason said the Patriots' lack of a pass rush is a problem that needs to be fixed. "You can't let an opposing quarterback stand back there without pressure," he said. "I think that has to be priority No. 1 for Bill Belichick: 'How the hell can I get pressure on the quarterback so that the secondary is not exposed.' "


Esiason said the Jets deserve some credit for letting Mark Sanchez have some more freedom than they did in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens. "The fact is, a lot of people were down on the Jets, were down on them offensively," Esiason said. "A lot of people, me included, felt that they had the bubble wrap on Mark Sanchez. They...

Mashup: Steinbrenner gets monument

The Yankees will unveil a monument of George Steinbrenner at Yankee Stadium's Monument Park before Monday night's game vs. the Rays. With the Dodgers having an off day, Los Angeles manager Joe Torre and his recently announced replacement for 2011, Don Mattingly, have indicated they plan to attend the ceremony. It will be Torre's first visit to the Bronx since he left the Yankees following the 2007 season after reportedly being offended at a low-ball offer from management. "There are no issues with Joe Torre and the Yankees," general manager Brian Cashman said. "The issue was his rejecting the offer. Without question he is welcome." Read more about that story and others at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Brady on D&C: Share the blame

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Jets. Brady said he expects Bill Belichick will distribute the blame among the entire team. "He'll scream at all of us," Brady said. "Obviously, nobody did what we were hoping we would do. We didn't execute in any phase. We win as a team, we lose as a team. If you play for the Patriots, that's the lesson you learn. Believe me, there's nobody that's happy coming out of a game like that."


Added Brady: "I was very frustrated, but I'm certainly not discouraged."


Brady paused when asked if he spent too much time trying to find Randy Moss in the second half, after Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis left with an injury. "As a quarterback, you're trying to pick the guys that have the good matchups and the guys that are open," he said. "We didn...

Darrelle on TD: 'Revis Island will be back'

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- After the Patriots' 28-14 loss to the Jets Sunday, New York cornerback Darrelle Revis explained that he was forced to pull up because of an injured left hamstring on Randy Moss' touchdown catch with 53 seconds remaining.


"I don't want nobody to score on me or the secondary. But I pulled up," said Revis, who wouldn't return to the game after the play. "I usually I rely on my speed, but I tried to speed up and it wouldn't let me speed up to make a play. It was just a nice throw and catch. I'll be on SportCenter tonight." (Jets head coach Rex Ryan later confirmed that there were two different coverages called on the touchdown catch, which might have led to some of the confusion in the New York secondary.)


Asked if there should be an asterisk next to the touchdown catch -- which concluded with Moss grabbing the ball with one hand -- Revis said he didn't think so, referencing a...

Ryan on Sanchez: 'He played great'

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jets head coach Rex Ryan was asked in his postgame press conference Sunday about the effort of Mark Sanchez in the Jets 28-14 win. The oft-maligned second-year quarterback completed 21-of-30 passes for 220 yards and three touchdown passes to lead the Jets to the comeback victory.


"I thought he played great," said Ryan of Sanchez, who struggled mightily in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens. "There's no question that you're going to get some criticism here [New York], but we've never stopped believing in him. We know this is a guy that's going to do it for us. We've been saying it all training camp and tonight we saw it. He was on the money with every throw."


Sanchez completed 10-of-21 passes for just 74 yards in the opener vs. the Ravens, but Ryan -- who admitted earlier in the week that he was "concerned" with the offense -- said he never worried that his QB was...
